Tim Cook confirms decade-long partnership by disclosing iPhones use Sony camera sensors

Apple CEO Tim Cook has confirmed utilizing Sony camera sensors in the iPhone for more than ten years. Numerous speculations over the years have suggested that Sony was providing iPhone camera sensors.

This is a rare case of Apple providing specific information about the components utilized in their products. The resolution, aperture, and other essential information about the camera are frequently listed in the specs of the company’s iPhone models.

Cook revealed in a tweet that Sony had been the iPhone’s camera sensor supplier for over a decade. Additionally, the tweet featured a picture of Cook and Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida at the Kumamoto factory. The confirmation has ended the numerous rumours that the iPhone uses Sony camera sensors.

“We’ve been partnering with Sony for over a decade to create the world’s leading camera sensors for iPhone. Thanks to Ken and everyone on the team for showing me around the cutting-edge facility in Kumamoto today,” Tim Cook tweeted.

iPhone 15 expected to feature Sony camera sensors

Even the iPhone 15 is anticipated to feature a cutting-edge Sony picture sensor. According to media reports, the iPhone 15 series would use a cutting-edge Sony image sensor.

Even in situations where there is strong backlighting, it is said to capture a person’s face vividly. Each pixel on Sony sensors reportedly has a twofold saturation signal level.

According to rumours, this presumed Sony camera sensor can capture more light while reducing under- or overexposure. However, Sony still needs to begin producing these sensors. They will reportedly be made in the company’s Nagasaki factory.
